Emmerdale's Kelvin Fletcher: The Robert 'reveal' will be explosive

Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher has admitted he can’t wait for Andy Sugden to find out his foster brother Robert killed his wife Katie.

Robert (Ryan Hawley) pushed Katie to her death as they argued about her threats to expose his affair with Aaron Livesy. And in the wake of her death, Robert has been supporting Andy (Kelvin) through his grief.

Speaking about the secret being exposed, Kelvin said: “I can’t wait for it – if that dark secret was to come out, I think that would be amazing and I’d be so excited for that. You never know what’s going to happen, but certainly for the foreseeable, it’s not something that’s on the agenda just yet. I’m sure when it does come out, it’ll be explosive.”

But the actor admitted the truth could leave his character a wreck – or even drive him to murder.

He said: “Initially I’m not sure it would be about revenge, but absolute hurt because Robert has been the one person supporting him through all this. He’s been like a true supportive brother and it’s cemented their bond. To learn of the truth would be the ultimate betrayal and I don’t know how Andy would cope.

“There also would be elements of sheer anger and Andy would want to kill Robert, but I don’t know if that would actually happen! Who knows how long it will take to come out and in what circumstances? All I know at the moment is that it’s one of those things where the thought of playing out the scenes is really exciting.”
